Transcript of Powerpoint Do's and Don'ts

  • 1. Bullets I wanted to show too much information so Iput a bunch on one slide I like to add a bunch of really long bullets sothat you can see all of my information Bullets are so much fun! I love bullets and know that everyone does too I want to cover my whole page with bullets toshow how much information I have Bullets are the best, and show how smart I am Yay for bullets!!!!!!!! One last bullet to get my point across.. Oh wait, one more

2. Bullets Bullets can be used very effectively to convey info They should be concise They should be in groups of four They should be spaced apart and not have toomuch info 3. Background A background should not be distractingfrom the point of your topic It should not be chaotic You should be able to see the text easily It should not be fuzzy or out of focus 4. Background This is a very simple background It conveys the appropriateinformation in a clean way It isnt fuzzy or unclear It doesnt distract from my overallmessage 5. Contrast This slide shows how importantcontrast is It is unreadable It is unappealing to the eye 6. Contrast Contrast is very important to make theslide eye catching Dark on light Light on dark These help to make the slide easy to read 7. Graphics/StyleI couldnt figure out how to split up myinfomration, so I just put everything on onepowerpoint and kept talking. I wanted to put aton of information packed into one slide so Iwouldnt have to talk as much. My backgroundis really pretty because I wanted it to stand outfrom everyone else. My text is also not typicalso that I can be different. 8. Graphics/Style This is a very simple, classy slide. It is complete with several bullets to show information easily The photo is in a good location and goes well with the slide 9. Rule of Four This slide has too many points It rambles on and on Everything is stuck together It is not grouped by four No one will remember the things that aresaid Everything looks jumbled The slide looks messy It doesnt look simple It isnt eye catching or appealing It is not easily readable 10. Rule of Four Group text into four items This keeps the slide appealing The slide remains simple Groups of four are easier to remember 11. ProximityText shouldnt be weirdlyjustified or spaced to one side,because it looks veryunbalanced. Center bullets also tend tolook strange They should be avoided mostof the time 12. Proximity Space images and text out evenly Put bullet points to left justify for nice,even spacing across the page Centered text makes for a nice, cleanpowerpoint 13. Fonts This font is distracting It takes away from the overallmessage It is hard to read USING CAPS INVOKES ASENSE OF ANGER AND ISEXTREME 14. Fonts Fonts should simple They should go well with the theme They should not distract from theoverall message Too many fonts shouldnt be used 15.
